Ngapa Dreaming - Dry Water Holes

synthetic polymer paint on canvas

51 x 152 cm

PROVENANCE:
Artist Directly Coo-ee Aboriginal Art Gallery, NSW

OTHER NOTES:
The lines represent the flowing water at Warntaparri where Warlpiri people dance for rain.They paint their bodies with white ochre and sit singing the song of the hailstones.

Rain floods the rives and makes billabongs, lagoons, streams and soakages. As each soakage dries up the Warlpiri move on to another. In the dry they dig a hole and cover it with leaves. By the next morning the water is clear enough to drink.
